“In our change work across the country, we have repeatedly seen what happens when individuals move from simply performing tasks in a given project to collectively owning the work as part of an interdependent way of life. When participants became willing to examine how their behaviors were affecting others and the whole, they experienced a deeper level of noticing, took more responsibility, were more capable of forgiveness and stepped into what needed to be done rather than stepping back because it seemed too difficult.”
